Top ranked light heavyweight contenders Magomed Ankalaev and Johnny Walker just clashed at UFC 294.

After trading good kicks in the first minutes of round one, Ankalaev landed an illegal knee against the cage. The referee stopped the action to let a doctor check in on the Brazilian.

The doctor decided to stop the fight as Walker seemed a bit confused. However, the Brazilian light heavyweight got upset about the doctor’s call and wanted to keep on fighting.

Guards, coaches and UFC president Dana White entered the cage to calm down the situation and the fight was eventually declared a no-contest.
